    1. I enjoyed Power Play, I really liked the concept and the plot was a lot of fun, however I did find the writing a bit clunky and the dialogue didn't feel all that natural. I really like new takes on mythology so this world is really up my street. It's not completely accurate (Valkyrie is a single female guard rather than a group of women who choose those who die in battle- it's one of the most well known parts of the mythology so I don't understand why it was changed- perhaps there's a reason in [...]


    2. Power Play is probably the most unique and refreshingly different story I have read this year. Fantastic concept, great storytelling and superb character definition and development. The protagonist, Jack, as a hockey player in Asgard was well defined. All the dialogue was done well, and I very much enjoyed the different first-person perspectives offered throughout the book.I was very surprised, as the blurb did not really convey well what I could expect. My first thoughts were, hockey player in [...]


    3. A fantastic and mythological journey into Asgard as the main character Jack Skelton makes the journey in 'Power Play'. If you are looking for action, adventure, mysticism, romance, and intrigue, this would be the book to add to your library collection. It has riveting twists and turns throughout with surprising elements that keeps you on the edge of imaginative endeavors of fantasy with style. The characters were well thought out and nicely developed with a flare of a more humorous and fun quali [...]


    4. I've read all of Jeremy Croston's books and I find them to be extremely entertaining. 'Blood and Arrows' is the installment that you should read before 'Power Play'. A well written story line as the characters continue to progress and develop as you learn more about them as they smoothly descend into action. Each epic saga brings forth a fierce energy that leads to an explosive climax. The interactions of roles and multifaceted characterization is interlaced perfectly as the plot comes to an end [...]


    5. This is a really fun title. It begins from the point of view of a dark elf, and so I assumed this would be a more run-of-the-mill fantasy novel, and then, Boom, Jack Skelton the hockey player shows up, and everything takes on a different complexion. Mr. Croston does a great job of dropping surprise after surprise regarding Jack's Lineage, so that by the end you're thinking of him as a completely different character. Very well done.I was also impressed Jeremy Croston's ability to carve out his ow [...]


    6. I loved reading the background in this book of the events leading up to Power Play. Rumil's story before she met Jack was captivating, and only made me like her even more. This book gave more of a sense of the dark times starting that lead us to Power Play. We got to know some characters even better. There were some very intense parts where I couldn't put the book down, and there were even some twists and surprises!


    7. Fun bookThe only thing I didn't like about this book was how it changed characters who were narrating without telling you who it was at the time otherwise I really liked the mix of mythology and fiction


    8. (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I was quite taken by the blurb of this book when I read it for the first time. I've been interested in Norse mythology for a while now, so it was good to have the opportunity to read another book inspired by the Norse mythos.It was an interesting concept to see a male character as the main character, since a lot of these types of books tend to have a female central character. And the fact that he wa [...]


    9. Disclaimer: I got this book from the Read$Reap program in exchange for an honest review.This book was sort of a fun read. I found the main character to be very realistic and authentic. He had a consistent personality all the way through even when he faced adversity. He was likable and so were most of the characters. I liked the take on the Nordic Mythology. It was very refreshing because it was shown from a different point of view compared to the usual take on Loki and Thor. There was a lot of c [...]


    10. I received an Arc of this book through the read it & reap programme on .The story follows the character Jack Skelton, a minor league hockey player, after a failed marriage and being traded off to his home team the Bears he lives a pretty ordinary life. One night after the practice a few of the teammates decide to meet up at the bar for a few drinks, all going well Jack notices someone sitting in the corner who looks out of place and when no-ones paying attention keeps looking at Jacks friend [...]


    11. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I thought this was an interesting concept and I am a big fan of most mythology, and Norse mythology is right up there. I really enjoyed the different takes on the characters that were not quite as one would suspect. Having the dark elves as the good guys was a different, and nice, touch. I did find the dialogue a bit stunted at times, but nothing that would lessen my enjoyment of the story. As another reviewer said, having the [...]


    12. This novel is extremely unique and full of action, humor and mystery. When I first started reading it, I didn't know what to expect By the end of the first chapter I was hooked. When hockey player Jack Skelton is transported to Asgard, I couldn't put it down. There, he meets mythical creatures, has an adventure, and falls in love. It is such an unusual idea for a fantasy book. I loved all the plot twists.Jack Skelton's character was a lot of fun. In fact, I thought the other characters were grea [...]


    13. These books are so weird. Like i am struggling with how much i actually think this book deserves praise. While i enjoyed reading this book its just so weird. Like yes i really liked the book. But it was like reading a really crazy fan fiction. Jeremy Croston is a good writer but these books didnt make me feel anything. They made me laugh and i enjoyed them. I just finished these books and i dont even know how i feel. like really Loki and stuff why? And Hockey? Like what? Why? These books are qui [...]


    14. Blood and Arrows is a quick fun read that takes place before Power Play. I really enjoyed how we get to find out more about the dark elves, especially Rumil, in this book. It answered a lot of questions for me and when I went back and re-read Power Play, it was really cool how much the backstory adds to certain parts.Like I said, it was a fast read (maybe 2-3 hours?) but for 99 cents, it was an afternoon well spent. If you like Viking mythology and action, I definately reccommend Blood and Arrow [...]


    15. From the description it sounded like a very original plot which is why I was interested in reading it. It didn't disappoint. I was a little worried it would have a lot of hockey in it but it didn't. It took the direction I was hoping it would. I love a good adventure and this was that. I connected to the characters personalities and there was just the right amount of danger and humor. There were also plot twists that I did not see coming! Easy to read and very enjoyable. I see it says book one a [...]


    16. It is a good fast paced book that really expanded my horizons on the myths behind characters like Thor and Loki. I enjoyed that is had all the elements I like in a book rolled up into one; comedy, action, some romance, and of course plot twists. I definately would recommend giving it a try, especially if you are a fan of strong female leads. Jack my be the main character, but the dark elf Rumil steals the show.


    17. I love the mix of Norse mythology with modern society presented in the Ragnarok on Ice books. Although this one is set primarily in Asgard, not in our world. The characters are engaging, and rather well developed. The plot is adventurous and fun. This was purely an enjoyable read.


    18. The book stars Jack Skelton, a minor league hockey player. He ends up transported to Asgard and discovers he is not who he thought. An adventure ensues where he must learn the ways of the dark elves and stop Ragnarok. I received a copy through Good Reads First Reads.


    19. The book is easy to read. However I don't find anything special about the story or the characters that makes me rate it more than with 3 starts
